THE STRANGE RECOVERY OF A RING
Harriet Douglas, who was in the service of Mr. Mappin, silversmith, of 79, Albert Hall-mansions, as temporary parlourmaid, was, on remand, charged, at Westminster Police-court, London, yesterday with robbing her employer. Detective-sergeant Morgan said that a diamond ring, value £100, which prosecutor missed, and about which the police made inquiry, had been found tucked in the trimming of Mrs. Mappin's hat. How it got there was a mystery. There was no charge with respect to other jewellery and a silver-handled parasol also found at prisoner's house. The accused had hitherto borne a good character. She pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing cigars, &c., belonging to Mr. Mappin, and Mr. Horace Smith, warning her, bound her over in £10 to receive judgment if called upon.
